Hello fellow collectors,
I have two Horst Moabit handcuffs. The model with the "up/down" hinge and the one with the swivel. The first is totally made of steel while parts of the second are made of aluminum. The second one looks newer (less rude) and is not marked with a number while the first one is marked with "357" (which means produced March 1957). Am I right that the hinged one is model 615 and the swivel one is model 616? And are later versions of Host handcuffs partially (lockcase) made of aluminum or are there two versions of each model (steel and aluminum)?
